Brashear? Yeah, I'm somewhat supprised, but perhaps they beleive they will get under the cap and still keep him around. While his salary wouldn't count against the cap, they still have to spend the money and then get somebody to replace him which will just be spending more than they have to.

With Desjardins, who is going to replace him? If they buy him out in order to get under the cap, they can't sign him for less, and they are going to have to pay somebody to do what he does right now. JR is in a similar situation, and is still very useful even if he is making more than he should.
